ONE POST WONDER SELLING! PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU LIST ITEMS.

Post links to your own or other people's Ebay auctions. It is fine to discuss live auctions, but DO NOT post links to closed auctions for at least 7 days after the listing ends. See sales forum rules for details.

ONE POST WONDER SELLING! PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU LIST ITEMS.

Post by plantman »

Do not just join this forum with no introduction and try and promote your ebay listings.

The members of this forum are vintage collectors and its appreciated if you introduce yourself and your items for sale.

If you do post fakes or cheap modern rubbish you wont get a warm reception :)

please ask if unsure.

Andy, Emiel, Joe,

I reckon we just edit any threads from newbies that just post links to auctions, and send them a link to this thread.

Is it possible to do the same as on some Star Wars 501st legionrelated forums where you are able to read but not to post in the sales section until you reach a set number of post ?

I think WhiteArmour doesnt allow anyone to post until they have 5 post in other sections of the forum

Hi Richard. We just prefer new members to introduce themselves in the revelant thread and perhaps share some pictures of there collection if they have one no matter how big or small. Then after they have our respect and a bit of a repuation advertise there auctions. However Modern items dont gt any love on here and coupled with the fact your prices are quite expensive you wnt get any interest on here :)

Me too, Jabba. Pretty sure they can do it easy enough also.

Make it so you can't even see the sales section without 20 posts or more. Problem solved.

3rd'd 20 post b4 you can see the FS forums would keep spam at bay, massively reduce the forum post count, but keep spam at bay Image

Actually been talking to Edd about the number of one post "what's it's worth?" or "buy my shit" wankers that we are getting ATM. The issue with a post limit before people can sell is it may just result in extra spamming/post count padding on other threads.
We'll just end up with 5/10/20 pointless posts on random threads till the person gets meets the post limit. Either that or us Mods will end up having to delete a whole lot of extra spam posts. Also not sure what would happen if someone has to post say 10 times before they can sell, but the majority of those 10 posts are Spam and we end up deleting them AFTER they have got their FS thread up and going.


Don't gt me wrong I'm fucking sick of 1 post wonders who never contribute, and 99 times out of a hundred never even bother to say thanks, but I don't know if there actually is a full proof way of stopping it.

Thoughts?

Seems to work okay on other forums mate.
The rule is, you can't make it up with spam posts or you get banned. Pretty simple really. :D
Surely when people join, a little email from Edd goes out to them welcoming them onboard etc? In that email should be a link to the forum faq, one would think.

If you can't give twenty quality posts... :roll:

Here is some help for people having trouble working out how hard it is to get twenty posts.

5-10 posts...Introducing yourself and saying hi.
1-5 posts....Checking out a few of the limelights.
1-5 posts...Bumping old posts they think they can contribute too.
1-5 posts...posting some pics of your own collection in the limelight section and talking about it.



Posts like "awesome", and "great" should not count towards your post count initially, and so should be removed.

Thanks for listening anyway, Weas. 8)
